have people recognize that when it comes to defense spending. some of the same people say we have to cut spending or complain that government jobs don't do anything, but when it comes to the defense contractor in their district, they think it is an important part of the economy in their district and that we should not stop spending on that. let's just make sure we're not spending on those other people. [no audio] my hope is that common sense prevails. that is always my preference. i think that would be the preference of the american people and it would be good for the economy. let me just repeat. if the issue is deficit reduction, getting our deficit sustainable over time, getting our debt in a sustainable place, then democrats and republicans in congress will have a partner in me. we could achieve that fairly quickly. we know what the numbers are and we know what needs to be done. we know what a balanced approach would take and we have done half of the deficit reduction we need to stabilize. there has probably been more pain and trauma in getting there than we needed. finishing t
hagel for defense secretary nomination might come up. after a week of white house gun violence meetings, it's not clear if the president will seek to reinstate a ban on assault style rifles. even if he does opposition is hardening. >> do you think an assault weapons ban can pass the congress? >> no. >> do you think it should? >> no. >> reporter: west virginia democrat joe manchin, who sounded open to new gun control measures immediately after the newtown massacre now wants a slow moving washington commission. >> if you just want gun bans you're wrong. >> what do we need? >> we need a comprehensive approach. >> reporter: with sales of firearms that congress might ban now sky rocketing, a top senate democrat called for a voluntary moratorium. >> if we continue to see nearly 80,000 gun sales each month in states all over the country, it's going to be counterproductive to whatever solution we will implement. >> reporter: the new york legislature sped towards passage of a tough new assault weapons ban. a move more states may copy as similar efforts stall in
came back from that and put banned performance enhancing drugs in his body. his great defense was, after what i've been through, do you think i would put that stuff in my body and, of course, everybody said, everybody bought that because it was so plausible. so for lance to have actually doped after cancer was a pretty tough thing to do and i think it indicated a win at all costs attitude that was commendable and it was a seriously wrong thing to do. >> you were one of the very first people to question lance armstrong. it goes all the way back to 1999. what was it that made you suspicious in the first place? >> my first point of kind of suspicion was watching lance's treatment of a young french rider and there will be people out there, if they were all doping, how wrong -- how can you blame lance and single him out? they all weren't doping and one of the guys who did not dope in 1999 was a young french rider, and he offered the pin that you couldn't win this tour de france in '99 without doping and much of the colleagues resented him saying that. the guy who most resented him sayi
we have already made to priorities other than medicare social security and defense, means that we spend on everything from education to public safety, less as a share of our economy than it has -- than has been true for a generation. and that's not a recipe for growth. so, we've got to do both to stabilize our finances over the longterm but spur more growth in the short term. i have said, i'm opened to making modest adjustments to programs like medicare to protect them for future generations. i also said that we need more revenue through tax loopholes. if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we can solve the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. turns out that the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate on this issue and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they don't think it's fair to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care. they don't think it's smart to protect endless loopho

with this and the europeans are dealing with this, but our defense secretary called it a terrorist attack and whether we will assist and whether there will be some sort of rescue operation or. >> yeah. >> megyn: whether there already has been one. we talked in the last hour. >> that's right. >> megyn: about the conflicting reports. there was one a lot of people died. there was one, a lot of people got out. where are the americans, are they alive, dead, rescued? do we have answers to the questions? >> i've been reading this up to the minute and we don't have answers to the questions. we don't know if most of the hostages have been killed. in fact, algerian government says they now control the facility and that contradicts reports that they don't because they're holding hostages there. we really, really don't know. and we've got an unarmed drone above, sounds a lot like benghazi, we can watch it, but can't affect it. i would hope that if americans are on the ground, that we would have, are part of building a plan that would try to get them out of there that doesn't involve negotiating with groups linked d
